If we're to be honest, there are more than ten things we don't know about how people view life insurance.

After hearing stories of how life insurance aided families following the deaths of loved ones—like how it supported an expectant mother who was suddenly widowed—we know that life insurance can mean the difference between a tragedy and a tragedy with a recovery plan.

That's why LearnVest teamed up with Guardian Life Insurance to conduct a survey aimed at offering a comprehensive look at the attitudes and behaviors of men and women toward life and disability insurance.

We surveyed 797 people between the ages of 21 and 40, and since we're not stingy about our knowledge, we want to share the findings with you.
